BURLEIGH believe they can benefit from fresh blood as they chase an extension of their stranglehold over the South East Queensland women’s division one rugby league competition.
The Bears head into this season targeting a fifth straight premiership.
With increased interest in women’s footy around the Coast, Burleigh are set to face more local rivalry than ever before.
Tweed Heads are pushing hard to have their new side entered in division one – and have had veteran former Bears prop Josina Singapu come on-board – while Maroons utility Rona Peters has headed to Runaway Bay to start a team.
However, the Bears have made some additions of their own to be battle-ready for the upcoming season.
Having already signed Wallaroos representative Millie Boyle, who will join the Bears after her Super W duties with Queensland, Burleigh have also gained French dual international Kris Sg Pch.
Sg Pch has previously played in the centres but is being assessed as a halves option at Pizzey Park too.
“She’s played league and union for the French team. She’s doing really good, she has been training really well,” said Bears coach Tahnee Norris.
